Keeping Our Patients Safe is Our Top Priority

We are so grateful to be here, and able to offer these services to you.  In an effort to continue to keep you and our staff as safe as possible, we continue to evaluate our COVID-19 procedures and have been watching case counts daily. Please see below for an outline of our current procedures. 

Prior to coming into the clinic, patients are asked to complete a screening questionnaire to evaluate symptoms and possible exposure. Your temperature will also be taken upon arrival to ensure you do not have a fever. Masks are required while in the clinic, unless otherwise directed by your practitioner.

Should you need to refrain from in-person treatments due to symptoms, potential exposure or another risk factor, we are happy to change your in-person appointment to a virtual acu-point treatment. Please reach out to us with any questions about our virtual sessions or COVID procedures.

Mask Update (June, 2021)

At Fertile Ground, we strive to create an environment where every person feels comfortable to receive treatments. This means putting the health and wellbeing of all our patients first. With the mask mandate being lifted in Minneapolis, Fertile Ground will continue to require masks for everyone entering the clinic unless otherwise directed by your practitioner.

We will continue to observe our full sanitization and screening policies and greatly appreciate your support in keeping our community safe.

Acupuncture Update (February, 2021)

In-person check in's are open again! Instead of calling for your appointment, feel free to come into the clinic and we will get you set up in a treatment room to talk with your practitioner face-to-face. All of our practitioners are fully vaccinated at this time. If you feel more comfortable with phone check ins, please continue to call at your appointment time.

Bodywork Update (January, 2021)

Bodywork is now open for in-person sessions! Please call us to schedule and discuss our COVID screening procedures.

Chandler is still offering virtual individual and group sessions and classes. These options are outlined below. If you are interested but don’t know where to start, please be reach out to us and we'll be glad to help you find the best fit.

Virtual Session

This would either be a 60 or 90-minute session using non-touch healing modalities such as Emotional Freedom Technique, Qigong Healing, or Spiritual Healing and Counseling, among others.  This option is best for those needing individualized support on healing, coping, or life path issues.


Combining breath, movement, sound, and visualization provides a powerful remedy for stress, pain, and anxiety.  The key to health is healthy Qi, and the key to Qi is the daily cultivation of joy!  I have been practicing for 25 years, teaching for 15, and am a certified teacher with the Chi Center.  

Sufi Teachings

The Sufi Path rests on the gentle science of softening the heart, and relaxing deeply into the love, peace, and beauty that is at the core of every human being.  These courses offer insight, practices, and support for those interested in transforming deep patterns through meditation and spiritual healing.
